some major hiring. dagen: president obama calling on spending $50 million. we have grover norquist with us. tell me how you would articulate your argument against it. >> taking $20 from one person, running it through the government and handing it to someone else. you take the resources for one job out of the economy through taxes or debt. then you move it to the other side of the economy and you hold a press conference while you release the same dollars. you are just moving money around. if you take a bucket of water outside of the lake and then walk it around to the other side, obama thinks you are extending it to great depths. that does not work. connell: we are going through a bunch of companies on the bottom of the screen as you are talking. the theory would be, if there was more spending enacted, that some of these individual companies would benefit. we have heard that before. are you basically telling me that most of these things are just dead on arrival. speaker boehner is essentially right? it will just not happen. it will not make it through this congress. >> president oba
the grover norquist pledge, which 98% of the house members on the republican side have signed, says you cannot close one tax loophole for the purpose of deficit reduction. if the priority really was deficit reduction, you'd be willing to close some big oil and gas loopholes to reduce those deficits. i hear our republican colleagues talk about those deficits and debt and the impact on future generations. thall is true. but apparently that's never important enough to shut down some of these tax loopholes for carried interest, for hedge fund managers, that kind of thing. can't close one loophole for the purposes of deficit reduction. that's because though overall priority here is really not deficit reduction on the republican side. it is as grover norquist himself said reducing government to the size that you can drown it in a bathtub. that's why you take an arbitrary political date, hit a particular target. and when you do that, you will drawn our investments in education for our kids, drown our investments in r&d, drown investment needed to make our country grow and you will drawn the so
had to buck grover norquist to do it. it wasn't perfect because compromises aren't perfect but it's that kind of balanced approach that will preserve armed services and defense and enable our economy to grow instead of choking off as aware whatwe're seeing as a strong stock market and other indications we can have success if we approach it this way. >> garrett: do we have an austerity risk or do the cuts need to happen? >> i think we can do this in a more sensible way. what we need is leadership from the commander in chief. rather than-- he's been out campaign ago even though this idea came from the white house apparently from jack liu,s had treasury nominee. he's been out trying to blame republicans. i think the american people are tierld of the blame game to come up with responsible spending reductions. we can do that without hurting our economy. also dealing with our tax code to make us more competitive instead of just the first answer being further increasing taxes. that's what away can do to help economic growth and move forward. >> garrett: senator ayotte, thank you very muc
of this program. as you know, grover norquist is ford immigration reform. we heard senator marco rubio yesterday. and others. they are pretty fiscal conservatives. i think we would all agree on that. $18 billion per year, it is spent on immigration enforcement every year. that is more than the dea all the rest of the federal government combined on enforcement issues. we will save billions of dollars once we legalize that. a lot of people kind of think about this as, well, it costs money. you know what costs money that we cannot be innovative. we do not have the high skilled talent that is necessary. technology, innovation, we can do it right here. we don't have to spend a broad. neil: you are obviously factoring in the savings you will get. [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> it would not to stop. you know, we currently can take our resources and better pinpoint those resources to those that are murderers, rapists, causing harm. what we are doing is having 11 million people, you are targeting them. -- there is not going to be any immigration reform package that will fill out a
. [applause] unfortunately, the state our ownnt doesn't have grover norquist pushing a pledge to protect it. we don't have millions of aarp seniors sending in their dues and rallying to protect american investments overseas. the kids whose lives we are helping save from aids, the women who are -- who we are helping to free from the horrors of sex trafficking, the students who can choose for the first time to walk into a school instead of a short life of terror, their strongest lobbyists are the rare, committed americans who stand up to them and for the resources that we need to help them. and i hope that includes all of you here and many listening. you understand why every time a tough fiscal choice looms, the easiest place to point fingers -- foreign aid. as ronald reagan said, "foreign aid suffers from the lack of domestic constituency," and that is part of the reason everyone thinks it cost a lot more than it does. so we need to change that. i reject the excuse that americans just aren't interested in what happens outside the media field of vision. i don't believe that about anyone of yo
. the his explanation was that we have to push back against the todd aiken and grover norquist. you do this by you giving me money and i buy up a lot of air time etc. i can understand the impetus but karl rove, basically he's a snake oil salesman and this was the eastest easiest thing for him to sell. the party is in big trouble. what appeals to the constituents in these districts does not appeal to a broad swath of americans. karl rove is finding the angle in which to make a lot of money and i suspect he will win in that regard. >> john: he takes their money and bernie madeff sands in awe. sam seder and joe williams, thank you for joining me. >> take care. >> john: we'll talk about another consumer product the super bowl. >> john: ever since bobby jindal boy governor said to the republicans don't be the stupid party, devoting them to keeping it stupid. in that brief amount of time congressman lou barletta just yesterday on abc this week, he said that banning guns to prevent gun violence is like banning spoons to stop obesity because we all have had foodies tell us that obama is going
that are the foundation of our nation's economic health. senator chambliss broke with grover norquist's pledge not to raise taxes. chambliss says he understands that sometimes higher taxes are appropriate. i see a country that is not adding enough jobs, struggling for economic growth. lagging in education i'm not putting saxby chambliss on a pedestal. but are too many of our political leaders beholden to the extremes of their parties to be part of the solution? >> there's no question that that's the case. i think john hit it exactly right when he talked about democrats being extremists on the point of entitlements, but republicans are also being extremists when it comes to the tax code. our tax code needs reform. if you reform it in the right way, the economy can take off. that's certainly for small businesses and corporations that have $1.7 trillion of cash sitting on the sidelines right now. could go to investment in plant and equipment and job creation that would create taxpayers and that would bring revenue actually into the treasury if you did this right. so you know, even to those folks
white house contribute ire grover norquist in the first speech as secretary of state. the watchdog here to respond. grover, what he's essentially saying is no one is kind of policing us, but what did you think of the back handed compliment? >> senator kerry, originally from massachusetts prior to immigrating to the united states -- [laughter] i talked to kerry, and he understands the protection pledge. he was trying to get taxes raised in 2011 with president obama, and he found he couldn't because republican said they made the commitment in writing not to raise taxes. they confuse the commitment by elected officials never to raise taxes with me. i share the pledge with people, but the power of the pledge and tax issue is independent of me personally, but sometimes people, grover, tax issue, i understand what he met. the tax issue is powerful. the state department needs o focus on what america does well, profit rights, rule of law. we should be exporting property rights, not money. neil: yeah, well, we are exporting money. the a lot of millionaires and billionaires ship it out of here to
irritate and get the bile of up grover norquist and all his minions. >> we're basically saying that over the next ten years you've got about 13 trillion, trillion dollars worth of money that's going into these tax expenditures and we're saying use something like 500 billion dollars of that amount to reduce the deficit. i don't think that's asking for a lot. >> erskine, did you guys look at this issue. you heard denis mcdonough over the weekend talk about raising the eligibility of maked. he said it's not a cost-saver, it's a cost-shifter. did you guys look at this and determine and look at that critique because that has been the main critique from the left. >> what we think is we've got to get serious about bending the healthcare costs, and to get serious, one of the things you have to focus on is the aging of the population. >> if you can't figure out with ten,000 people a day turning 65, if you can't figure out that the social security system is $900 billion cash negative right now, if you can't figure out if you don't do something with healthcare, it's on automatic pilot and keep stum
plowing ahead. it's such fun for me to irritate the aarp and grover norquist, in equal measure. make sure life worthwhile. so they're willing to be savage. anything we do we will be savaged. >> when was the last time you talked to president obama? >> well, certainly erskine was close by, and he goes up and he checks with me after they have their conversation. i think personally i talk with joe biden on the phone. i've known joe for 30 years, greg bell. we don't always agree but a good man. and i love him. but, you know, personally i suppose a year and a half or something since i've personally talked the president. erskine has that ability to do close by and then he checks with me. >> when was the last thing you talked to the president? >> right before the election. i talked to vice president biden since the election, and i talked to members of the white house team constantly, you know, whether it's been jack lew or gene sperling or -- >> it's pretty remarkable you have not talked to the president since the election. why is that? >> i don't think it's remarkable. having worked in the white
and say public confidence going down. that's good for our party. >> we know that grover norquist starving the beast of resources. now they're starving the beast of credibility. they're starving the beast of the federal government with any public confidence that it can actually solve problems. this is part of the destruction of our federal government. they would be delighted if people lost confidence in the government and if they could further tear it down. a lot of people run for congress against the government. that's a tried tradition in american history. but usually once they have office and they have responsibility to govern, they find they have to be for something as well. but this crowd has never made the transition to being for something. >> but they take a salary, don't they? >> they take a salary -- >> where they work in the united states government, they're working for the government to function, at least, even if they vote against it. they do want a functioning government but now i get the feeling they don't. >> i think there was a little truth serum from the congressman. you c
government, ending job-killing regulations, to do what grover norquist has always wanted to do, to shrink government and make it so small that you could drown it in the bathtub. and even though between 1.4 and 2 million jobs will be lost, republicans would have accomplished an aspiration for their party that they have had for a long time. >> no doubt. >> and they figure that they can come in through the back door, introduce a bill to restore the defense cuts, and with a bill that would pass both houses by 2/3 votes, that they could get a supplemental bill to restore defense cuts. this is what i think their plan is. and were it not for the president, we may -- they might have tried to -- they might have succeeded. >> the scary thing about this is that once you see these cuts kick in and once you see americans lose their jobs there's no guarantee that these folks are going to get back and get rehired and get back into the game. and this is the dangerous thing about these cuts that are one week from tomorrow. congressman shaka fattah, what about that? people lose their jobs, they're gone, th
on that super committee had pledged to grover norquist they would not raise revenue only to cut and after it failed, after all going to we ended up with-- >> let me a-- >> i could rant and i'm going to. we'll let you get a word in. >> sean: you're so nice to give me a word on my own question. >> i changed my mind. >> sean: let me ask you, you said the-- congressman, i will give you your chance i gave you three minutes to rant, calm down. i gave you three minutes, relax, i've got a question for you. you were invited on the program to answer a question, i want to give awe couple of questions. >> no, i'm going to-- >> congressman, you said. >> i'm going to say what i think is right. >> sean: why are you so angry, you're so angry. >> why are you angry. >> sean: i'm not angry i'm laughing the at you because i think it's caomical. >> i'm latching at youghing at it's not the first time. >> sean: and i invited you on and let you rant for three minutes and spirit of bipartisanship, let's-- >> a republican. >> sean: i'm a registered conservative you want to make a bet, a $10,000 bet. >> i don't bet
it is because the grover norquist pledge that 98% of the house members on republican side have signed, says you cannot close one tax loophole for the purpose of deficit reduction. now, if the priority was really deficit reduction, you'd be willing to close some big oil and gas loopholes to reduce those deficits. i hear republican colleagues talk about those deficits and the impact on future generations, and all of that is true, but appointly, that's never important enough -- apparently, that's never important enough to shut down tax loopholes for carried interests, for homing fund -- hedge fund managers, that kind of thing. can't close one loophole because the overall priority here is really not deficit reduction on the republican side, it is as grover, himself, said, reducing government to the size you can drown it in a bat tub. that's why you take an arbitrary political base to hit a particular target, and when you do that, you'll drown our investments in education for our kids. you'll drown investments in research and development. you drown investments needed to make our country grow, and yo
. >> caller: yeah, to grover norquist, how are they legally an officer of the congress? because i wrote twice -- i wrote to the senate and i wrote to the house of representatives, their ethics committee and i never got an answer back so i don't think they have an answer. >> stephanie: oh, it makes you chucklely, yeah. this question has been raised many times. since when do you take an oath to a guy. >> the oath that matters is the oath to the constitution and no pledge has precedence over that oath. i think the oath that take the no-tax pledge would say it is consistent with the constitution. >> stephanie: grover norquist nor wayne lapierre are elected to anything so if you are signing some oaths or trying to get ratings from a guy -- >> i have never pledged an oath to anyone named grover. >> the only people you should take an oath to are your constituents. >> stephanie: right. alan you are on with congressman schiff. >> caller: yes, sir, good morning. they knew that march 1st, 2013 would be coming and i have to deal with my home budget. now all of a sudden it's o
